They say that a picture is worth a thousand words.
Based on these great shots from the Virginia Forum 2014, I think this is true.
The above shot is from the panel discussion that I had moderated on Leveraging The Power of Procurement. I am standing before the panel in the orange shirt in the upper left hand corner, listening to Kate Vitasek’s response to one of the many thought-provoking questions.
Great panelists including IACCM’s Tim Cummins, NIGP’s Rick Grimm, The Hackett Group’s Chris Sawchuck and noted author and academic Kate Vitasek.
Robert Gleason who is the Director, Div. of Purchases & Supply at Commonwealth of Virginia is on the far right, has a tremendous vision in terms of where Virginia procurement is headed in the future.
The panel discussion – which was filmed in its entirety – can be accessed by clicking on any of the above images.
Of all the great shots, this moment between Kate Vitasek and Chris Sawchuck is one of my favorites . . . I wonder what they were thinking.
